Level I

Passport Photo

Anyone have any experience/know how strict the proctors are with the passport photos?

My passport photo was taken 7 years ago so my photo is pretty outdated… Currently my hairstyle is completely different and I wear contacts instead of glasses. (I could wear my glasses to the exam, but the glasses I have currently are quite different from the one I was wearing in my passport photo). Which may not sound like much, but I feel may be enough for them to question, depending on how strict they are…

How to calculate CAPEX in FCFF formula


This is my first message here, I’ve already intensively used google and textbooks to find an answer to this question but I still can’t find an unanimous formula for this.

When we calculate FCFF from EBIT, the commonly accepted formula is:

FCFF=EBIT*(1-t)+D&A-deltaNWC-CapEx (with the latter 2 calculated coherently with the signs)

trying to teach myself financial modeling. a few questions

I havent really seen examples of this anywhere on the internet, which im a bit suprised about as i thought financial modeling would have alot more discussion online.

Anyways, a few things i cant figure out how to do:

1)  A project is designed to re position a product in the market place, the goal of the project is to increase its marketshare.  How do I forecast sales/projected market share growth when the previous sales data was not solid due to poor product positioning?

Schweser Flashcards

Hello Everybody,

Did anybody order the Schweser Flashcards with their notes package? I just seen them online and figured they might be pretty helpful. 


Price isn’t an issue. Company will pay for it.


Hi guys, I’ve finished all readings for the second time and first time completely (including the 015s LOS since I’ve been studying with 2014 material since November).

Now I’m hitting on Qbank, I make tests with 60 questions with all levels and go on, I’m scoring pretty good, with some exceptions due to random and limited sample of questions in a 60q test.

To get most of it, should I make tests only with advanced questions to “replicate” test (I’ve heard tests are harder than Qbank, so I’m afraid that I’m walking at park here)
